Research Planning for Fire Fighter Personal Protective Equipment

Research planning on topics relating to fire fighter PPE is on-going, and primarily coordinated through the Fire and Emergency Services Protective Clothing and Equipment Correlating Committee. The staff of the Research Foundation meets with this Correlating Committee on a periodic basis, since this group is responsible for multiple Technical Committees and standards that directly relate to PPE for emergency responders. Further information on the completed research reports and existing projects for this topic area is available through the page for emergency responder research at:
